Follow the money-yes, tax money 'Tax funds have likely made White Hat Charter school operator David Brennan and ECOT operator Bill Lager very, very rich. (Some out-of-state charter operators are also cashing in on Ohio's Wild, Wild West charter industry.)The charters, that these fine, civic-minded gentlemen operate, generally speaking, perform at a pathetically low level.'

Plunderbund, in a July 7, 2015 issue, posted the donations that Brennan and Lager made to certain House and Senate leaders. Go here and see for yourself, the corruption that will end PUBLIC EDUCATION in Ohio, and the process that will put ALL our schools into the handoff the legislatures and politicians...not an educator on board!

Brennan's total take on tax funds for charters since the beginning is in the range of $1 billion. Lager has not been in the business as long but is within reach of $1 billion total. This is money extracted from school districts thus, harming school district students. This enormous financial drain from school districts would be more tolerable if their schools were outperforming school districts.With their respective stables of lobbyists and their multimillions in campaign contributions, they leverage legislation which expands their charter school empires and profits.Although they contribute a lot to political campaigns, these donations constitute a small percentage of their cost of doing business.
